London's finest Christmas windows & festive façades

Our favourite boutiques in London have been transformed for Christmas, sparkling with yuletide spirit

Cartier, Mayfair

Cartier has once again wrapped its flagship New Bond Street boutique in a gigantic, plush red ribbon. Yuletide trimmings elegantly frame each gleaming window, neatly stacked with Cartier's lustrous Christmas collections.

Harrods, Knightsbridge

People come from far and wide to marvel at Harrods during Christmas, lit up in all its splendour. This year, the prestigious department store has partnered with Dolce & Gabbana on a resplendent window display, featuring animated puppets, disco balls and neon signs, doused with Italian glamour. Inside, an Italian market spans the entire fourth floor, brimming with toys, decorations, ready-to-wear and limited-edition wares.

Tiffany & Co., Mayfair

Tiffany & Co's has dressed up its Old Bond Street boutique for Christmas, festooned with elegant wreaths and glittering festive lights. Look a little closer, and each window features a surrealist set-up featuring wooden mannequins and iconic Tiffany packaging in front of a miniature New York skyline, swathed in signature aquamarine hues. The beguiling display is inspired by legendary window dresser, Gene Moore, who was responsible for Tiffany’s dramatic window displays on Fifth Avenue during the 1950s.

Harvey Nichols, Knightsbridge

This year, Harvey Nichols' world-famous Christmas windows take their cue from the vibrant Autumn/Winter 2017 and Pre-Spring 2018 collections. The sparkling tutti-frutti display features an innovative light arrangement made up of 382 rotating mirror balls and thousands of LED lights, in addition to vinyl stars, sequins, glitter and Bowie-esque lighting bolts, for a gloriously bright riot of colour.
